Get INVOLVED: Pop ups, Tasters and Challenges to wet your appetite and get you wanting more


Pop Ups and Tasters

Through our Get ACTIVE programme of pop ups and tasters, you get the chance to have a go at something new. We'll be running pop ups and tasters on campus each week, covering a range of fun activities including: 

  • Volleyball
  • Short tennis
  • Badminton
  • Rounders
  • Kwik Cricket
  • Self-defence
  • Street golf
  • Molkky
  • New age curling
  • Boules
  • Frisbee
  • Mountain boarding

Head over to the Students' Union webpages to view the full programme. You don't need to book on to a pop-up session, just turn up and Get INVOLVED.

Activity Challenges

There’s nothing like setting goals and joining in a challenge to help you get moving more.

Throughout the year, we'll be scheduling monthly challenges for you to get involved in - you can even compete against your friends and colleagues. Whether it's a plank a day, Freshers bucket list or 10,000 steps, we'll be inviting you to get involved in regular challenges, aimed at getting you moving and coming back for more. 

We also support the annual BRIT Challenge each year between January and March, which aims to increase physical activity and raise awareness of young people's mental health. Keep an eye on our webpages for more info coming soon and get involved in our BRIT challenges and raise money for mental health and wellbeing.

Events & Festivals

Through Get ACTIVE, we'll be running regular events on campus, from Freshers' Week Fun to Sports Carnivals, Sports Days, Beach Festivals and more. Keep an eye on our webpages and follow us on social media (links below) to keep up to date with What's On.
